It's a Charlie Darwin Christmas

A segment on The Colbert Report made me laugh out loud last night. Colbert “wagged his finger” at the Order of St Nick greeting card company, which offers a line of cards for “atheist, agnostic, skeptic, scientific, humanist, and free-thinking” people who celebrate Christmas.

The company believes it fills a niche, noting that “[n]early 15% of Americans identify themselves as ‘non-religious,’ [while] … surveys show that 95% of Americans celebrate Christmas.”

They offer eight designs at http://www.atheistholidaycards.com/ or http://www.cafepress.com/orderofstnick/6179512.

Happy Holidays, Everyone!
